    I love mine I have a yates class 1 kevlar belt. There are alot of great choices on the market. My personal choice would be to have a class 2 built into my gear however not an option at this point. I prefer a kevlar over a nylon though the kevlar more durable and keeps a better shape.

    Default In My Gear...

    As an explorer, I use my gear often, but usually do not need many of my own tools. Due to the amount of S&R trainings my post does, i tend to pack light.

    1. Helmet with faceshield and one mounted LED flashlight
    2. Bunker coat with fire gloves, Shelby Extrication gloves, 4' webbing, and safety glasses.
    3. Bunker pants with boots.

    Any other tools i will need are on our apparatus, so i don't need to carry anything else individually.
